This recipe is an AIP reintroduction.
Recipe type: The Main Event
Serves: 6
For the burgers:
  • 500g happy beef mince
  • 500g happy pork or veal mince
  • 1 x egg yolk
  • 1 x large handful parsley, chopped
  • ½ medium red onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 x small tin pineapple rounds
  • 2 x ripe avocados
  • 1 x lime, juiced
  • 6 x rashers happy bacon
For the sweet potato fries:
  • 6 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon TSL House Sweet Potato Fries Seasoning (recipe follows)
TSL’s House Sweet Potato Fries Seasoning:
  • 4 x tablespoons salt
  • 1 x tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 x tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 x tablespoon dried herbs (I used half basil, half oregano)
  1. Heat your oven to 230°C (that’s 450°F). Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine your mince, egg yolk, parsley, red onion, garlic, and optional mustard. Get your hands in there and give it a good massage. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Form six patties out of the beef mixture. Pop into the fridge for while you prepare your fries. You can turn the barbecue on now to heat.
  4. Peel and slice your sweet potatoes into ½ cm slices. Now, take the slices and cut into ½ cm wide fries. Throw your raw sweet potato fries into a large bowl. Toss with just enough coconut oil to coat. Sprinkle with House Seasoning and give the bowl a good jiggle to coat.
  5. Spread your sweet potatoes in a single layer on the lined baking trays. It’s important that you don’t overcrowd (soggy fries – no Bueno!).
  6. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until your fries are tender and golden brown, turning and rotating the trays occasionally.
  7. While the fries are baking, pop the patties onto your barbecue for 5 to 6 minutes per side over medium-high heat. Now’s the time to cook the bacon, too.
  8. If you’re having pineapple, grill slices for 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  9. Peel and mash your avocado. Add a squeeze of lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  10. To assemble the burgers, top each patty with the smashed avocado, grilled pineapple, fried eggs, and any other toppings you may choose.
For the House Seasoning:
  1. Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Will keep for up to 6 months.
